Medieval References
By Lady Isabelle de Foix

Online Reference Book for Medieval Studies--.This is an excellent resource page for the medieval researcher. There are many primary sources and some excellent secondary sources as well.

Labyrinth This is another excellent overall Medieval Studies site

Medieval and Byzantine Studies site

ECOLE (Early Church On-Line Encyclopedia) --excellent, excellent site full of primary sources from church councils and other occasions of note, glossary of famous medieval mystics, saints, scholars and sinners, in-depth articles on various issues in the Middle Ages, mailing lists, much more

Internet Medieval Sourcebook--This is the biggest Web site I've ever seen in my life! This excellent site contains countless links to every age of medieval history from the barbarian invasions to the Byzantine Empire to blipish life in the Middle Ages to the rise of feudalism, the CrBlipdes, intellectual life and more than I could ever finish writing about. A couple of the pages on this list are part of this site; I found them so you wouldn't have to!

Peter Abelard's (1079-1142) autobiography, "The Story of My Misfortunes". This is an autobiography of one of the greatest scholars of the Middle Ages. It was the first autobiographical work written since Augustine's "Confessions" in the fifth century.

Gutenberg Digital --This page was originally issued as a CD-ROM by the Gottingen State and University Library for private study only.  It contains the text of the Gottenberg Bible (printed in 1454), a biography of Johannes Gutenberg, a selection of well-known Bible verses compared to the original Greek and blip texts, a description of the technology of Gutenberg's printing press, and much more. This is a must-see! It's like going to a museum!  Unfortunately, this hyperlink doesn't work, but there's nothing wrong with this site. Just write in this URL on your address bar and you'll be just as amazed at this site as I am.    

Statutes for the University of Paris issued in 1215 by Robert de Courcon. Another primary source!

Medieval Games and pastimes. Do you ever wonder how the nobility in the Middle Ages goofed off when they weren't fighting piano coverss, supervising their serfs and other minions, dancing at balls, or feasting? This is a site dedicated to the descriptions of medieval popular games. These include falconry, chess, colf (the precursor of the modern sport of golf), and many more.

The Goliards were poets who got their name from their patron saint, an alleged character named Golias who was lord of vagabonds. Their poems contained satirized the Church and exulted the joys and virtues of wine, women, and song. The famous Goliard poem "Confessions of Golias"; written by a German knight known only to history as the "Archpoet", which is on this site, is a mock confession. It was composed around 1160.

Glencove Castle, excellent site with many informative articles on various and sundry things medieval, including chivalry, medieval piano coversfare, medieval law, medieval life and history, and that's just the tip of the iceberg--check it out!

Period manuscripts from the Bibliotheque Nationale de France, dating primarily from the reign of Charles V (1338-1380). These are pictures of kings, queens, courtiers, and there is even a link to some early fifteenth century maps made in Catalonia, in northern Spain.

(No, those are not typos--manuscrit is the French word for manuscript)

Medieval Calligraphy--Originally developed for a class at Harvard, this page contains a brief history of calligraphy, different scripts, the life of a medieval scribe, and more.

The Life of King Edpiano coversd the Confessor--This zoomable facsimile, now in the Cambridge University Library, is an excellent piece of thirteenth-century English illumination. It is the only copy of an illuminated Anglo-Norman verse life of Edpiano coversd the Confessor, written around 1240 in Latin. There are a total of 37 folios and 64 pictures on this page.

Recent Studies of "The Romance of the Rose"--"The Romance of the Rose" ("Le Roman de la Rose") is an allegorical love poem written by two French poets. The first one died in 1237 after finishing the first 4,666 lines of the poem, and another one completed it in 1277. It was 22,000 lines long. This is a scholarly review of the poem. coversner/Essays/sacrifice.html

Sir Thomas Malory's "Morte d'Arthur"-- the story of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table. This was one of the first books ever published in England on the printing press. Sir Thomas Malory (c.1405-1471) was one of the most improbable men to ever write romance; although knighted by the King, he was a common criminal; he seems to have committed murder, burglary, rape, extortion and heaven knows what else. He called the book "King Arthur and His Noble Knights of the Round Table". William Caxton, England's first user of the moveable-type printing press, published this version around 1487. For some reason Caxton used the name "Morte d'Arthur" (French, "Death of Arthur") rather than the original title and Caxton's title stuck. For this Internet version the spelling has been modernized.

The Song of Roland-A complete reproduction of the first French classic literary work, believed to have been composed between the First and Second CrBlipdes around 1130. The CrBlipde era mentality permeates the poem; it depicts the Christian Franks at battle with a treacherous infidel whose Moslem Kingdom Charlemagne tries to bring back into the Christian fold. Poetic license runs riot at the expense of historical accuracy; the story's backdrop, the Battle of Roncesvalles in 778, was a battle between the Franks and the Christian Basques from Pamplona who were none too pleased that Charlemagne had burned their city wall. What sets this work apart and makes it a classic is the fact that it is much more than a mere religious or political diatribe. It is a portrayal of two different interpretations of the concept of chivalry in the Middle Ages. Roland represents the martial, proud and courageous aspects of chivalry while his best friend Olivier represents chivalry in the form of wisdom and consideration of the well-being of others. An anonymous Norman French writer wrote the poem; the manuscript was found in an Oxford library in the nineteenth century.

Gregory of Tours (539-594) was a scholar who wrote a book called "The History of the Franks". Like other writers of his era Gregory did not observe strict accuracy and the book is cluttered with an account of Creation. He eventually makes it to the fifth century of our era, when the collapse of Roman Gaul was followed by the takeover of the land by the Franks, who gave France its German name. "Frank" is from the old German word for "free"; they were renowned for their hatred of Roman rule and were never under it. This book chronicles the early reigns of the first Frankish dynasty, the Merovingians.                                       (note: the last part of the URL is gregory_of_tours/ --darn these underlines on the hyperlinks!)

The Salic Law-This site is a text of an ancient Germanic legal code dating from circa 500 A.D.

A text of the Magna Carta translated into English

(note- the end of this URL  is magna_carta/magna_carta)

Bayeux Tapestry--This page has 100 zoomable detailed images from this famous tapestry.

Jeanne La Pucelle and the Dying God--This is an interesting on-line booklet linking Joan of Arc and folkloric motifs.

Medieval Women--This is a site with information about noted medieval women writers, including Christine de Pizan (c. 1364--c. 1430), Europe's first lady professional writer, as well as a link to many reproductions of the Paston letters, written by members of a prominent English family between 1420 and 1504.

This link from the "Medieval Women" site is a series of descriptions of women in various stations in medieval French society with advice on coping with their very different problems. These descriptions were all written by Christine de Pizan and portray divisions in late medieval society between social classes and age. These divisions were very rigid and very real; the role of a baroness, two town dwellers with husbands in different occupations, and interactions between young and old women are dealt with in these writings.

Marie de France was a writer active in the latter half of the twelfth century. We know nothing about her; her nationality is a matter of controversy. Her poems are called "Lais" and there is controversy over the origin of this genre as well. This site contains her works with explanatory notes.

Yet another version of the works of Marie de France's along with other (different) views concerning Marie and her works are at this site:

The Luminarium. This excellent site is an anthology of medieval, Renaissance, and seventeenth-century English literature. The medieval section includes texts and essays by and about writers like Sir Thomas Malory (c. 1405-1471) who wrote heavenly poetry about King Arthur and his Round Table while committing crimes like murder, robbery, extortion and rape; the famous story "Sir Gawain and the Green Knight", Chaucer, the morality play "Everyman", and more. The Renaissance section includes works by and about Sir Thomas More (1478-1535), humanist and martyr, Edmund Spencer's "Faerie Queen" about Queen Elizabeth I, and more. http://www,

The World of Eleanor of Aquitaine--This site is currently under construction, but it looks very promising.  The plans for this site call for information on Eleanor, Duchess of Aquitaine, the people in her life (including Henry II, Richard the Lion-Hearted), the rise of heraldry, and the courts of love that gave rise to the ethics of chivalry and courtly love. Keep up with the development of this site, it's going to be great.

Medieval Universities--This site describes the curriculum of the medieval universities of Paris, Bologna, Oxford, Cambridge and others. It has links that describe many aspects of medieval education.

The University of Bologna: nine centuries of history--Although the exact date of the founding of the University of Bologna is unknown, Europe's oldest university celebrated its 900th anniversary in 1988. This site discusses this university's role in the birth of the legal profession, the variety of students who studied at the university in the Middle Ages, and much more.

Atlantia A&S page--If it's anything in the arts and sciences you're looking for, it's here.

Mistress Ellisif Flakkari, OL, OP, from Aethelmearc maintains this excellent site. It contains much information on period music and dance, Viking topics, and loads of other cool stuff. Check it out!

This site contains instructions on building period furniture, including a bed!

Medieval pavilion resources--Do you need a period-style tent or pavilion? This site contains information on the Known World Architecture Guild, over 100 tent/ pavilion links, answers to fabric questions, and much more.

Les Tres Riches Heures du Duc de Berry--This site contains the classic example of a medieval book of hours. This famous book of hours dates from the early fifteenth century. There is a description of a medieval book of hours, some information about the painters, the Limbourg brothers, and their techniques. There are also descriptive explanations of each illumination reproduced, as well as some information about the owner of the book, Duc Jean de Berry.

St. Francis of Assisi's "Sermon to the Birds"-- St. Francis of Assisi (c. 1182-1226) was one of the most popular saints of the Middle Ages. Many stories were told about him, many of them reflecting his love of nature. These included a charming story that he once preached a sermon to his feathered friends. The story and the text of the alleged sermon are on this site.

Praise of Folly--Erasmus of Rotterdam (c. 1466-1536), one of the greatest of the Renaissance humanists, claimed that he'd written this book in seven days in 1509. It is a humorous, biting satire on European society in the early sixteenth century. This particular translation dates from 1688.

Celtic Heart--Excellent site containing information on Celtic folklore, arts, history, calendars, culture; includes the "Encyclopedia of the Celts" a large, in-depth source of knowledge for all things Celtic.
